More on anonymity in peer review

This study lacked an appropriate control group: Two stars

I came across this post on anonymity in peer review by Jon Brock. I have previously tried to discuss pros and cons of anonymity here. I think Jon’s post is a quite good argument in favour of identifying reviewers.

In relation to this, I actually wanted to sign a review I did recently for a journal as I wanted to personally stand by my assessment of the manuscript. I asked with the editor first if this was OK with him. He explicitly requested me NOT to do so, because this was against their review policy…

Browsing on Twitter, I just stumbled on this blog by Alexander Grossmann. It looks like he has a ton of interesting reading on open scientific publishing. I found it through Giuseppe Gangarossa on Twitter.

An emerging consensus for open evaluation: 18 visions for the future of scientific publishing

I just found this treasure trove of papers on open evaluation in science thanks to this post by Curt Rice that sums it all up very well: Open Evaluation: 11 sure steps – and 2 maybes – towards a new approach to peer review

A look at the process of submitting articles to OA journals | Open Science

A look at the process of submitting articles to OA journals | Open Science.

If you are thinking of publishing your article in an open access model, there are usually two paths to choose from. One – you can publish in Green OA, which means adding the paper to a specially prepared repository (self-archiving). Two – you can choose the Gold OA model and submit your article to an OA journal, where it will be corrected, peer-reviewed then published. At this point I would like to briefly describe the process of submitting articles to OA journals for those who are considering just that option. It is a general description, and various steps may differ depending on the publisher and the journal.

I just came across this presentation shared by Karthik Ram on Twitter (see also It describes a project that tries to create a sort of git for data. It seems to be at a very early stage yet, but looks very interesting.

Inspiring Open Science Talk by Arvind Narayanan

I came across this talk by Arvind Narayanan a couple of days ago. He talks about how he has succeeded in publishing in unconventional ways and makes suggestions on how we might change the current publishing model – a topic that has become a bit of a hobby of mine lately:

Peer-review is the gold standard of science. But an increasing number of retractions has made academics and journalists alike start questioning the peer-review process. This blog gets underneath the skin of peer-review and takes a look at the issues the process is facing today.
